  1. This is good news, at least Barnardo’s does not have a political agenda. I wish them well in their efforts to raise awareness of this despicable crime.

  2. Wow, some things do turn full circle. As a serving police officer in the 1960’s in Sheffield I well remember the local uniformed NSPCC Inspector calling in to see us at the nick and update us on a very regular basis, at least once a week. We worked very closely with this man and attended many households when and if he was refused entry. Very few incidents were missed in those days as he was one of the most determined men I have ever known. I say, “Bring back these people whose ONLY concern was the welfare of the children”.
    Incidentally, he was made privy to information from the local Social Services, we were not!!
